I got banged up pretty good today in our scenes, and there might be some soft tissue damage in there. That’s a lot of fluid, we’ll see.

I’ve got to get it out of there first before I can get any kind of MRI.” It’s unclear whether production will be delayed. Variety has reached out to A24 for comment.
